Crystal Diane (Bell) Thomas, made her journey to Heaven on Aug. 5, 2017. Crystal was born on June 26, 1961, in Prescott, Arizona, to Gary and Janet Bell of Mayer. Crystal lived in Mayer on the family ranch through her high school years. Later in 1991, she married her true love Steven Thomas and together with their children they began their journey.
